To whom it may concern,

I am asking you to oppose HB 96. I oppose this bill for so many reasons, but mainly because it has not been proven that early education is beneficial to children. In fact, the opposite has been proven http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/head-start-tragic-waste-money. It is a waste of money. It has been proven that children do better when they start education later http://www.imfcanada.org/issues/nurturing-children-why-early-learning-does-not-help http://www.moorefoundation.com/article/48/about-moore-home-schooling/moore-foundation/articles/when-education-becomes-abuse I don't believe the government should be taking away parents' rights and forcing children out of their homes, where they belong.

Please oppose HB 96.

Thank you,
 Lisa Shepherd
